They posted an accompanying video scrolling through the Recording Academy's website showing the winners.

It looks pretty legit, although it's most likely an elaborate hoax. Regardless, chaos ensued, as can be expected with any kind of leak on social media.

Things got messy pretty fast.

Some thought it was a thoughtless mistake from the Recording Academy. Some thought it was an elaborate undermining of the Awards, and others simply thought the Twitter user made it all up for fun.

Naturally, there were some folks thrilled with the supposed winners.

"These Grammy leaks better be true bc rep deserves," one Twitter user wrote, obviously referring to Taylor Swift's Reputation.

Grande fans were about a second away from a mental breakdown.

"So according to the Grammy winners leak, Ariana didn't win ANYTHING????" Twitter user @cannoligrande wrote. "Excuse [me] academy, explain this shit." 

Others were near tears because they weren't sure how else to feel.

"I'm sorry, but if these Grammy leaks are real I'm gonna cry," user @stateoftaylor89 wrote. All this over a single now-deleted tweet.

It practically goes without saying that the leak was, indeed, fake. The Recording Academy told Complex it was far from legit.

"There is no legitimacy to this. GRAMMY Awards results are not shared, even with Recording Academy staff members, until the day of the GRAMMY Awards ceremony, when names of the recipients are delivered by Deloitte in sealed envelopes," a spokesperson told the publication.

And instead of people realizing the whole leak was fake, they think the Recording Academy is now re-voting and changing all the winners.

We're pretty sure after 61 awards shows, the Recording Academy knows what it's doing. To make such a huge mistake now would be pretty embarrassing.

Anyway, Alicia Keys is hosting this year's ceremony and it's bound to be one for the books.

BIG news.... ???????????? (check my story)

Then again, every year there's some sort of drama that unfolds, and everyone talks about it for weeks to come. What will it be this year?

In case you forgot, Bruno Mars took home practically every award at last year's Grammy ceremony.

The year before that, the big winner of the night was Adele for her album 25 and her mega-popular hit song "Hello." 

The official winners will be announced at the 61st annual Grammy Awards, which will air live from Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Tune into CBS on Sunday, February 10, at 8 p.m. ET to see for yourself. Miley Cyrus, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monáe, Post Malone, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Brandi Carlile will perform.

The stakes are high this year, but my money is on Brandi Carlile. Then again, what do I know?

Maybe we already actually know the winners, and the ceremony will give us nothing to talk about! Just kidding.
